Photograph Freckle Face Woman Lady With a Dead Bird on her Hat

That's a big ribbon flower on her hat or a whole dead bird...yuck. This hat was probably hand made either my this lady or a milliner. My great-grandmother was a milliner as a young girl in the early 1900's. I think she had to go to work at 13 years old to help support her family and never got to complete high school. That wasn't so rare in those days.

This is a studio photograph but there is no identification of the lady or her photographer. There is a rubber stamp notation on the reverse and a blue sticky tag that has a number on it. The photo measures 4 1/2"x6 1/2". I'd like to believe those are freckles on her face, but no, maybe it's dirt! A wrinkle on the lower enter not in the face image and a shiny spot of something on the lower edge, right hand side. Soiling and discoloration because of the age.
